Kelly Ripa’s Cake Off for a Cause

We’ve all seen Kelly Ripa’s incredibly funny commercials for Electrolux where she demonstrates the wonders of motherhood and how we balance laundry, cooking, sleepovers, parties, pets and, hardest of all, husbands. So it seems only fitting that the two uberforces of motherhood would join forces to raise money for a worthy cause, ovarian cancer research.

Kelly and master cake decorator, Buddy Valastro, of TLC’s “Cake Boss,” recently participated in a cake decorating event to raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). Five teams got together and squared off in a cake decorating contest using tips they learned from Kelly and Buddy. From 10 February to 9 March, Kelly and Electrolux are inviting you to go to Kelly Confidential and vote for your favorite cake. Those cakes are soooo pretty and funky! For every vote cast, Electrolux will donate $1 to OCRF as part of its $500,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer. For even more fun, you can decorate your own virtual cake and send it to family and friends. Electrolux will donate another $1 for every cake sent.

Do you need more inticement? How about this, everyone who sends a virtual cake will automatically be entered to win an Induction Range from Electrolux. Sweet, huh? And just in time for Valentine’s Day.
